Fragment caching strangely honors the options I pass to it


#1

Hi,

In my view I have the following cache:

<%- cache(:controller => ‘products’, :action => ‘index’, :action_suffix
=> ‘footer’) do -%>

<%- end -%>

And that’s the file generated:
tmp/cache/views/www.mysite.com/products.action_suffix=footer.cache

Why isn’t fragment caching picking up the :index option, and incorrectly
making use of action_suffix?

According to the API
(http://www.railsbrain.com/api/rails-2.1.2/doc/index.html?a=C00000103&name=ActionController::Caching::Fragments),
I should be getting the following filee:
tmp/cache/views/www.mysite.com/products/index/footer.cache

Any idea?

And that’s the file generated:
tmp/cache/views/www.mysite.com/products.action_suffix=footer.cache

Hmm, according to railsenvy’s tutorial on the topic, it seems correct:
http://www.railsenvy.com/2007/3/20/ruby-on-rails-caching-tutorial-part-2#fragment

Maybe it is not making use of the :action option because I have
developed my app restfully, so /products implicitly triggers the index
action?
